Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Set in Nevada in the 1860s, Bonanza chronicled the adventures of the Cartwright family who owned a large ranch called The Ponderosa. Ben Cartwright and his three sons, Adam, Hoss, and Joe fought for what was just and decent in a time where lawlessness was common.

The widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright had three sons, each by a different wife: the oldest was the urbane architect Adam Cartwright, who built the ranch house. The second was the warm and lovable giant Eric, better known by his nickname "Hoss." And the youngest was the hotheaded and impetuous Joseph or "Little Joe." They all lived and worked on The Ponderosa. Nearby Virginia City helped populate the episodes with guest starring characters from all over America.

Broadcast between September 1959 and January 1973. Filmed by the National Broadcasting Company at Paramount Studios.

"Escape To Ponderosa"
Season 1

Adam is bushwhacked by three men, who turn out to have deserted from the army. When Ben pursues them, he is hindered by a Captain Bolton, who is also after the three men.

Subject: Cast shines, ending predictable
The Cartwrights try to see justice served when caught between escaped military prisoners and a sadistic officer determined to resolve things his own way. Adam gets bushwhacked early, sitting out most of the show. Good performances support this story despite its somewhat predictable ending. The familiar theme song is replaced by what sounds like a Duane Eddy tune.
